For a student-level instrument this modern day C melody sax represents
great value for money. The tone is consistent and compact and plays
nicely in tune all the way to the top - this makes a nice change as we
have found that other similar value C Melody horns have had really
wayward tuning, whereas this model is very acceptable. It also has a
micro-tuner which allows the player to more accurately find the correct
mouthpiece position.






If you can't source a C Melody mouthpiece we advise that a good quality
alto mouthpiece will work nicely as an alternative.






Supplied without mouthpiece.

"fun hybrid sax"
norwegian dabbler
seeing as there is no other review for this - and I own one - it seemed fair to share my thoughts. *About C-sax*: It is a hybrid. Almost as long as a tenor, almost as thin as an alto, and sounding somewhere in-between. Both tenor and alto mouthpieces work, giving you slightly different sounds. (I use Jody HR* alto+tenor mp and they both work great, but more exotic tenor mouthpieces might not work so well since the sax is a bit thinner than a tenor). Coming from the tenor and putting an alto mouthpiece on it, it feels like "the biggest alto you ever played" (and with some really nice deep tones you could never reach on a real alto). With a tenor mouthpiece it feels like an in-between sax. Melody tuning certainly simplifies some situations, but to me the main attraction is the slim & smooth sound, like an alto with just more depth and resonance. *About the Sakkussu*: quality is fine - not perfect but better than i feared for the price. Easiest sax i ever owned for reaching the low Bb. Not quite in tune (middle D and 3rd octave especially), but not horrible and i can compensate for it. I really like the micro-tuner since i keep changing between tenor and alto mouthpieces. It came with a decent backpack-style soft case (which is important since it likely wont fit in either tenor or alto bags). Summary: fun addition to your collection with some nice niche uses but not a real replacement for tenor or alto. Quality good for the price.
